AMD Combat Crate Might Cost More Cash

AMD announced the new Combat Crate to help with the cost of graphics cards. The included Ryzen 1600 CPU, MSI Motherboard, and RX 580 seems like a decent deal. After adding up the individual components though, there isn't a ton of savings happening. Especially since the crypto mining craze seems to be dying down.



UL, Also Known as Futuremark, is Having a Sale!

UL Benchmarks (formerly Futuremark, same benchmarks) is having a massive 75% off sale on 3DMark, VRMark, and PCMark 10. Quite frankly, that's an awesome sale! Check out the links below since you only have until the 30th to take advantage of these deals on Steam.



UPDATE: AMD Ryzen Overclocking Scare, Watch Out for Your Warranty!

AMD has officially stated that if you use any CPU cooler other than their included ones, you will void your Ryzen processor warranty completely. This is a hypocritical move that poses huge issues for builders, especially if they aren't aware of this. Intel has much better policies for coolers, AND overclocking.



AMD Ryzen 2000 Series Ruins Overclocking, then Revolutionizes it!

The release and reviews of the Ryzen 2000 series has been an up and down day. At first I was excited, then I felt like overclocking was going to be gone, then I had an epiphany. AMD probably revolutionized the way overclockers benefit from it!



Attention Overclockers: Don’t Buy a Ryzen 2700X!

The overclocking results are in and the Ryzen 2700X is both amazing and awful at the same time. AMD is making it easier than it's ever been for everyone to overclock, but manual overclocking is basically pointless on 2nd gen Ryzen. It's a tough day to be in the news!



Finally! Aorus X470 Gaming 7 Revealed from Gigabyte, with 4.6 GHz Overclock Tease!!!

This is my favorite looking design among X470 motherboards I've seen so far. Not only have I waited for Gigabyte to release a Gaming 7, but the Aorus features indicate some stellar performance. However, what's the deal with that 4.6 GHz Overclock tease? Could it be???



AMD Ryzen 2700X Overclocking, a Giant Question Mark

A story came out claiming a Ryzen 2700X was overclocked to 4.35 GHz. On further investigation, the real number was 4.19 GHz. Could AMD have a let down on their hands when it comes to overclocking? Don't make that call just yet since the motherboard in question is a huge factor.



Crucial Ballistix Releases Tactical Tracer RGB RAM, Amazing Looks and Software

The Tactical Tracer RGB RAM kits have an awesome heat spreader design. As good as that is, it looks like Ballistix has brought the memory's lighting control to a new level as well. The utility has a lot of features and users can custom 3D print their own light bars!



AMD Ryzen 2nd Gen CPUs Ready for Pre-Order – Why You Should and Why You Shouldn’t

AMD announced today that global pre-orders of their 2nd generation of Ryzen processors are now available. Well the friendly experts at PureOC are here to help with a list of reasons on why you should, or why you shouldn't pre-order one of the shiny new CPUs from AMD.



Corsair Gives Much Needed Break from RGB, Dominator Platinum Special Edition Contrast RAM

If you've been needing a break from all the RGB news, Corsair has just the RAM you need. The Dominator Platinum Special Edition Contrast Memory offers a clean aesthetic, with only white LEDs, to match the builder who wants a professional look. Also, there's performance to match!



Too Much RGB? Not Yet! iBuyPower Cable Combs Reach a Dazzling Level

Will there ever be too much RGB? Probably, but I love the new iBuyPower RGB Cable combs. They targeted what could be considered the most boring part of a custom PC build, and turned it into rock concert levels of awesome! At $30, the price is pretty decent too.



AMD doesn’t Need a Ryzen 2800X to Skew Great Pricing

The Ryzen 2000 series is about to release and price listings on Amazon reveal to be better than originally expected. Of course, the question arises if AMD will release a 2800X CPU later on. I don't think they will, and I really think they shouldn't add another processor to the Zen+ lineup like that.



Thermaltake Launches Pacific CL Series Copper Radiators with Interesting Features

All radiators may look the same to some, but overclockers appreciate the fine details that add to cooling performance improvement. The Pacific CL Copper rads from Thermaltake have some normal evolutionary updates, but their reflow solder technique looks like a great improvement.



I Like the FSP CMT520, but Companies Need to Fix Their RGB Advertising

The latest from FSP looks like a great case. The CMT520 has a lot of building room and some solid tempered glass features. While the RGB lighting looks nice, it's a bit misleading. This chassis only seems to support one RGB color at a time, rather than addressable RGB lighting.



Enermax Launches LIQFusion CPU Cooler, a Rainbow of Cooling

RGB CLCs are great, but the truly great ones have addressable RGB lighting. The Enermax LIQFusion CPU cooler has this feature, as well as the new external hose pump. While the lighting looks great already, there's a good chance that cooling performance will be top notch as well.
